Interview with George Monbiot

George Monbiot is a hero of mine. He's the only guy in the journalistic circles who gets the science of climate change right, understands the scale of the problem and is not afraid to speak his mind.

Monbiot doesn't usually give TV interviews so it was great to come across a video interview, in which he talks about: why climate change is the biggest issue facing humanity, why a war-like effort is needed to combat it, why Stern review isn't enough, why people in the West would have to be "hypocrites on an unprecedented scale" to point fingers at China, why journalists don't understand climate change, how the media censors news and what are the potential proposals to address climate change.

The link above is part-1 of the 4-part interview (~ 23 minutes in total). You will find links to other parts on the same the page. Video works quite well adapting to your bandwidth. Not to be missed.
